All I could think when taking these pictures was props to bloggers and influencers who live somewhere that is always rainy or cold, like maybe Seattle? I was wanting that golden hour glow and instead, I got gloom!
So I went for a casual, simple neutral look. While it was just a bit chilly, opting for a coat option just seemed best since it goes well with the weather. I thought of some rainy weather staples as well as a few things that I like to do for those few days a year when it like to really come down here in LA!

I also just feel like rainy days are those days when you finally finish that book you’ve been wanting to read, you eat that tin of ice cream and you watch that Disney movie with your puppy! Here are a few more ideas:
- Go to the movies and get a jumbo popcorn
- Walk around the mall
- Stay home and clean out your closet
- Make it a girls night in
- Read your favorite magazine
- Do something creative
- Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while

Pink is obviously my signature color, but I have been wanting to venture more into wearing more black. I have always been fond of light pinks and whites and minimal with black. However, I have been wearing all black recently as it is chicer and put together. I think that maybe as I get older and my style changed, I have been wanting to wear pieces that are edgier and chic than cute and girly. I think my move to LA has also influenced that as well.
The bodysuit is one of my favorites and it was from Zaful. I do want to mention that it is really big on me for being a size small but it may just be because I am short and the piece was meant for someone taller?
I loved the neutral jacket, such an easy one to throw on over work out clothes or something easy that works with almost anything when running out the door. The black details are some of my favorites and again so easy to pair with other pieces because they are neutrals.
Neutrals are an easy fix for many outfits. I love them both together and to tone down pieces with loud prints and colors. They are as necessary as a basic pair of jeans and a white tee or tank.

Every once in awhile I like to share my Friday Faves but I thought I would mix it up a bit and share some interesting links that I found on the internet!
The internet is a HUGE place! I don’t really think we get that (well at least I don’t) since I don’t know anyone that ever goes to the second page when you search something on Google! What are your favorite things to search for or look at on the Internet? I definitely go for funny videos, (follow me at briana.nicole03 on tik tok) recipes, how-tos and news!

This is a bit more of a dressy casual look for me. Perfect for the weekend in LA! I am always in a white tee and jeans so this was an easy one for me. One thing I definitely did was add cool accessories to complete the look. I am all for a simplistic look and this belt bag really made it functional.
Almost all of this outfit was gifted from Lulu’s! I was so happy to be able to collaborate with a brand that I love so much and I really shop at. I have been truly blessed to be collaborating with more brands that I truly love and want to share with all of my followers. I love being able to be creative and show off some outfit inspiration and wear something fun or cool for everyone.
I posted a video of me practicing my poses on my stories on Instagram, did you see them?
I shot these pictures on Rodeo on a Sunday which is like a huge tourist spot. I thought it would be a good shoot though because I always want to wear my outfits in a real situation and write about where you can actually wear them. This is something that I would repeat and wear on another weekend out because these shoes are so easy to walk in, I don’t have to hold the bag, and the sunglasses are a must for LA. This tee is going to be on repeat all Summer/Fall because of the high neckline.
